the direct contact with hamas. neither united states or israel has that. the decision to send secretary clinton, i'm told by white house aide, is neither an acknowledgment that things are close, nor do they feel as if things are stuck. they're hoping her presence, first in israel and then in the west bank meeting with the palestinian authority, then in cairo could nudge along the process to see if they could get to a point of some sort of negotiated ceasefire. as far as the united states is concerned, the spokesperson says what that begins with is hamas stopping the rocket fire into israel and a longer negotiated settlement they hope can be agreed upon. >> chuck todd in cambodia. thank you. as he just mentioned, secretary of state hillary clinton is heading directly from cambodia to israel to try to work out that diplomatic situation to the violent escalations of tensions in gaza. nbc's martin fletcher is live in tel aviv for the latest situation there. good morning to you, martin. >> reporter: lynn, good morning. the leaders here, israeli and palestinian certainly need all th

for the u.s. and israel. the peer is that yesterday's vote will make palestine less likely to negotiate a peace agreement with israel moving forward. yesterday the united nations overwhelmingly voted to upgrade palestine's status to a non-member state and that could allow them to go after israel in criminal court which could delay or complicate peace talks in an effort towards forming two independent states of palestine and israel moving forward. u.n. ambassador susan rice called the vote a setback. the u.s. had threatened funding in the west bank in the hopes of preventing it. now rice says that the only way to truly form an independent palestinian state is through direct negotiations with israel. she says that is something the u.s. is committed to making happen. despite those comments, palestinians took to the streets yesterday in a step towards independence. now do both sides come to the table and start talking about peace. both israel and palestine has said that is something they want. reporting live in washington, back to you. >> all right, danielle. thanks so much. >>> w
